Kevin Drum thinks President Bush doesn’t hold enough press conferences and re-iterates his proposal for a Constitutional amendment requiring presidents to hold weekly two-hour press conferences.
I’m not sure why we need this. Press conferences are, frankly, silly. Almost as silly as presidential “debates,” in fact. I mean, the guy is fulfilling the duties of the office of President, arguably the hardest job in the world. His policies, programs, and the state of the country are under constant scrutiny. Why does he need to answer silly-assed questions from the press?
